The Idaho Supreme Court ruled Friday on the last outstanding redistricting challenge, officially clearing the way for the state’s spring primary election.
The sole challenge to the congressional map alleged that the commission missed its 90-day constitutional deadline to submit its final plans, and lacked the ability to divide existing voter precincts in the congressional plan.
The court ruled unanimously against the challenges.
The court ruled against four challenges to the legislative plan last month.
The candidate filing deadline to run for office is March 11, and the spring primary election is scheduled for May 17.
